Pretty tomboy Kim (Felicity Jones) used to be a champion skateboarder, but now she flips burgers to support herself and her dad. Opportunity comes knocking when she flukes a winter-long catering job in one of the plushest ski chalets in the Alps. At first, Kim is baffled by this bizarre new world of posh people, vintage champagne, epic mountains and waist deep powder. Then Kim discovers snowboarding, and her natural talent soon sees her training for the end-of-season competition, with a chance to win major prize money. But before she can become a champion again, Kim needs to overcome her deepest fears – and figure out what’s going on with Jonny (Ed Westwick), her boss’ handsome but apparently unavailable son.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Pleasant if timid...
Fresh: A chirpy, tween-skewing, snowboarding-themed romantic comedy.
Rotten: Hot Dog... The Movie and its disreputable ski-comedy ilk might have been a low point in cinema history, but at least their unbridled crassness had energy; Chalet Girl embraces similar '80s tropes for a lethargic you-go-girl fairy tale.
Fresh: Chalet Girl is possibly the first British rom com since Working Title's heyday that won't make you want to stick pins in your eyes, will actually make you laugh, and wasn't made by Working Title.
If you like Gossip Girl, you will love this movie !!
This movie is exactly what you think it is. A really fun romantic comedy with the added bonus that it stars Ed Westwick (with his authentic english accent). I liked the fact that is was set on a ski slope - you don't see that very often and the skiing scenes were amazing in their own right. Pure entertainment and definitely worth watching.
endearing chick flick
its the working class british origins of our heroine that make this film worth the time. Predictable but entertaining.
Makes you smile - totally enjoyable
